Photo of the Week #119

February 20, 2012

This past week started with the greatest gift of all, the birth of my son, Judah Samson Gerver, on Monday morning. His strong name fits his herculean build: 8 lbs. 13 oz. and 22 1/4 inches long. I’m sure he gets his super-human strength from his mom, Shira, who brought him into this world the old-fashioned way–with no drugs.

I took this portrait of Judah at one day old. Behind that bouncer-like physique, I see a sensitive side. He’s probably pleased to know that he’s a unanimous first-ballot Photo of the Week-er. Not that it’s rigged or anything :) Judah had better not get too comfy though because once he takes his first steps I plan to put those broad shoulders to good use by having him carrying my photo gear!

Photo tech specs: Canon 1Ds Mark II camera, 85mm f1.2 lens with extension tube EF 12 II, f2.5, 1/320th, ISO 250.
